I have been playing around with LLMs for the past couple of days and decided to try out GitHub Copilot. Overall, the experience so far has been similar to that of ChatGPT, in that sometimes it’s helpful, and sometimes it’s not. It pretty much always require some tweaking, so you have to know what you’re after, and you have to be able to check that its suggestions are actually any good because it’ll often be wrong, and sometimes in subtle ways.
Anyways, something funny happened. I was trying to see if Copilot would also generate natural text unrelated to surrounding code when prompted to do so in a comment. I tried
# Write a funny prompt mimicing youtube personalities asking for more subscribers: #
and Copilot suggested

Thanks for reading.
